Matchup History

The history between the Philadelphia 76ers and the New Orleans Pelicans technically dates back to the franchise’s time as the Hornets after relocating from Charlotte in 2002. Since then, the teams have played 43 times in the regular season, and in one six-game playoff series (2003), when the then-Hornets were still a part of the NBA’s Eastern Conference.

The Sixers hold a 23-20 advantage over New Orleans in the regular season, and have a 4-2 postseason record against the Pels, as they advanced in that 2003 first round series to the Eastern Conference Semifinals thanks in part to a 45-point performance from Allen Iverson in the closeout game.

Now when these teams go head-to-head, it’s for marquee matchups featuring the 2023 NBA MVP Joel Embiid against Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram of the Pelicans. This season series is done for 2022-23, but you'll have a chance to see these two teams battle it out at The Center in South Philly next season. Grab your 76ers tickets today!
